For Christmas 2010, I received many gifts for which I am thankful. I was also passed over for a gift because I didn’t commit to going somewhere.
But the gifts I treasure more than any others are the ones given to me by my friends:
home made strawberry jam
a book about ghost towns in AZ and NM
a book about ghosts in Boston
a rose quartz necklace
a tree planted
a beautiful altar cloth
a schnauzer tshirt
a game pet
Each of these means more to me than I could ever express. My life is truly blessed for their presence. And yet I am still a bit shocked when I receive a text from one saying she’d been thinking about me. I never expect anyone to give me a second thought.
